Joseph Addai

Week 3 – RB – Cedric Benson, Pierre Thomas, or Donald Brown?

Posted by in NFL Week 3 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 24th, 2009 | 4 Comments

Question: I need some start/sit advice for week 3.

Which 2 RBs should I start?

Cedric Benson vs. PIT — Tough matchup against a good run defense
Pierre Thomas @ BUF — Thomas has been injured all year
Donald Brown @ ARZ — Splitting carries with Joseph Addai
Thomas Jones vs. TEN — Up against another great run defense.

Answer:

Did you not take any RBs in the first 4 rounds of the draft? Tough break there. I would start Benson despite the tough matchup against Pittsburgh. He’s guaranteed to get the most touches out of your backs. Bench Thomas Jones. The last spot is a toss up between Pierre Thomas and Donald Brown. If Pierre Thomas is in the lineup on Sunday, I would start him so check the injury updates right before kickoff. If Pierre plays, you play him.
